All about Burrito Cats

I'm here to tell you all about the awesome Meme Burrito Cats!

It pretty much involves wrapping your cat up like a burrito and then adding it to instagram with the hilarious hashtag #purrito

 Besides the cats looking seriously unimpressed they do look crazy toasty warm :)

So it is a silly meme but there is a more serious side to wrapping your cat up.   Jackson Galaxy in a segment from My cat from Hell explains the "burrito technique" as a way to comfort a cat by swaddling them tightly and hopefully allowing them to calm down from a stressful situation.  The site, Vet Street actually provides some pretty awesome instructions and photos for wrapping up your cat, especially if your cat is not so happy about letting you cut their nails or giving them medicine!

So it's a meme that's hilarious, cute and practical all in one :)

    1. I would personally love being a purrito - seems so cosey and loving :) Have you taken photos yet? The next Happy Caturday perhaps?

    1. I don't think Gremlin is a fan either, we do something similar after a bath but he definitely is more interested in getting out then snuggling up :P
